Default 3x Bodyweight Deadlift

A 660 pound deadlift at a 220 pound bodyweight is my next goal. If I get close I am going to compete just to bring this sucker home.

I am becoming obsessed about deadlifts.

Competition and a decent belt would get you a good 15-20kg's I reckon.

My best gym deadlift is 190kg's. Best meet DL is 215kg's and there was a little bit to spare there as well.

DO IT!!!!!!!!

I have been so obsessed with deadlifts that I have been thinking about giving them a heavy focus for the rest of 2011, and maybe just competing so I can deadlift.

My bench sucks right now, and my squats are squats. But my deadlift keeps going up.

I might start looking at non-raw feds so I can use a belt. I don't care what type of fed it is. It's time to get 700 while I can.

I think all RAW fed's allow you to use a belt and wrist wraps (not straps). Lots of the US ones allow you to use full on knee wraps as well it seems. None of the UK ones do.

I had actually forgotten that the raw feds allowed belts.

Yesterday's PR was my first 2x bodyweight deadlift. In fact, it was well beyond 2x bodyweight, thanks to Paleo

Son Light Power has DL only comps.

I'm easing up on deads for this 6 wk period to concentrate on squats. But, I bet I'll be back. I'm after 2.75 before I start thinking 3x.
